I would quit anything pertaining to Blizzard immediately... but this isn't my soapbox.


Having rational, fairly well tempered people recognized for their ability to not blow up all the time as moderators would cause you to quit a game? You disappoint me Alvie.

I don't know how long you've been posting in other areas than Mac Tech, but there is a world of reasons why this is a horrible idea - and I know other greens and other people who share my ideals.. If you wish to pursue further dialogue regarding my stance, feel free to contact me via posting character name at gmail.

D3 has no Customer Support forums so folks end up putting all the questions on the Tech Support forums. Blues sometimes answer, but it is mostly left to customers. To the point where blues use my copy pastas now, which I am perfectly happy to share. Also, since D3 release there are NO blue posts on weekends. It is not like WoW so please do not assume. Without me there on weekends they get no answers at all, even to the easy questions!

Edit - On topic I just want this fixed. Seems Beta access is ruled out as a factor in it.

I do not play WoW, and did not participate in any beta or PTR. Still isn't working.

Still not working as of Sunday morning. We have been unable to properly log in to the D3 forums since Friday night.

I can almost guarantee the moment the PTR authentication server is brought up, we'll be able to login again. And I bet we lose login capability again when they take it down. :(

I'm also going to state that I, too, am having the exact same issue, and there seems to be no fix for it.

Yes. I suspect that the issue does have something to do with the PTR authentication servers since the beta theory was disproved. I am now wondering if everyone with the forum issues also would have had the immediate dc from the PTR server issue.

I know not everyone with the issue has tried logging into the PTR while it was up. I would like to know if of the people who did try the PTR and are in the forum locked group if any of you were able to successfully get on the PTR? For the person who did not participate in beta but is locked do you know whether or not your account was flagged for beta access at any point?

So it seems to be PTR related even if we never had anything to do with it. Please fix! I do not want to be down on the forums every time the PTR is down.

Tirla, your avatar looks like a SD version of Azonia of the Zentraedi from Robotech. :)

Still not fixed. What's up with the Diablo 3 forums?

Is it related to people with WoW accounts?

Edit: Been a few days now, I like to post on the Diablo 3 forums, and not being able to do so feels like a basic feature is being taken away from me.

Well, I can safely say it isn't triggered by the presence of a mobile authenticator, since I removed mine and still couldn't post (thankfully I was able to restore the authenticator with little fuss afterward).

Since it started the moment the PTR authentication server went offline, it's a fairly safe bet that when it comes back up, so too does our posting ability.

I just hope they fix this before the PTR servers go down again in the future, because having forum posting ability tied to a PTR account that is about as stable as Charlie Sheen doesn't exactly instill confidence in the system. :P

I contacted support on the issue, and they gave me an e-mail address. Sent them an e-mail, and we'll see if they reply with anything of note.

I'm not holding my breath on a timely response (or even a halfway coherent response) due to the fact everybody's spread so thin with MoP happening at midnight.

Quite frustrating. I can't help anyone when I can't post :( Sure, MoP will distract me when I am home but forums help make the work day go by faster.

I wish that we could at least switch from the diablo III profile to our WOW or other blizzard game profile when issues like this happen so we could still post over there. I may not be an MVP but I like to answer questions when I am looking at the forums and see something I can help with.

It doesn't matter what profile you use. It's the account that's unable to login. My default profile over there is Tiapriestess, same as here.

Add me to the list of people with this same issue...

It seems to have happened after I opted into the D3 PTR, (which is downloading right now). But that's just speculation because I haven't bothered logging in to the forums for a while so I dunno. I do know that both my WoW and D3 accounts are active, and I can only log into the WoW forums. My battletag doesn't appear as an option when I'm on either site, and there is an error message near the account log in / log out box when I switch from WoW's community site to the D3 community site.
